The entire structural gene for tyrocidine synthetase 1 from Bacillus brevis ATCC 8185 has been cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. Transformed E. coli cells were screened for their ability to produce tyrocidine synthetase 1 by in situ immunoassay using antibodies against gramicidin S synthetase 2 which cross-react with tyrocidine synthetase 1. The(More)
The multienzyme gramicidin S synthetase 2, composed of one polypeptide chain, was treated with trypsin and chymotrypsin to give fragments retaining partial enzyme activities. Previously, a tryptic fragment of this multienzyme has been identified as a structural and functional domain. In this study two more fragments, activating Leu and Val, respectively,(More)
The multienzyme gramicidin S synthetase 2 was treated with trypsin to obtain fragments capable of activating proline. Three different active fragments were detected. The course of proteolysis was simulated by using a concentration range of trypsin; the cleavage pattern indicated that one of the fragments was particularly stable. This fragment was purified(More)
